1 6-ounce container (2/3 cup) nonfat cherry or vanilla yogurt
1 cup halved or chopped pitted fresh cherries or thawed and drained frozen cherries
Place 1/2 cup cherry juice in a medium bowl. Sprinkle gelatin on top and let stand for 1 minute. Bring the remaining 1 1/2 cups cherry juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add to the gelatin mixture along with sugar to taste and whisk until the gelatin is dissolved. Whisk in yogurt until combined. Divide among 4 small dishes or ramekins. Stir 1/4 cup cherries into each portion. Refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Note: Superfine sugar dissolves instantly in liquid. It is commonly available in the baking section of most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, simply process regular granulated sugar in a food processor or clean coffee grinder until very fine.

great to make with kids!
I made the Creamy Cherry Jello with my 3 year old grandaughter. We substituted V-8 Fusion for the cherry juice and some frozen mixed berries I had in the freezer. It was fun, easy, and delicious. This is a keeper for kids and adults.
